During the past year, over 100 local teenage members of the National Honor Society from Wrightson Ridge School, and Sahuarita and Walden Grove high schools donated their time and collected 20,000 pounds of goods for the Sahuarita Food Bank.
Many teens volunteered with the food bank directly while others were given duties outside of the organization, which included volunteering with Valley Assistance Services where they were tasked with checking on residents at home to see if they needed any essentials.
While 9,300 pounds of non-perishables were gathered for the food bank, a number of teenagers also gathered over 10,000 pounds of oranges, lemons and grapefruit from local yards for the organization.
